The Register: Just cough into your phone, please… MIT lab thinks it can diagnose COVID-19 from the way you expectorate

The Register: Just cough into your phone, please… MIT lab thinks it can diagnose COVID-19 from the way you expectorate. “Academics claim their AI software can detect, with 98.5 per cent accuracy, whether or not someone has caught the COVID-19 coronavirus, just from the sound of their coughing. To build this software, the MIT team used three ResNet50 models, a popular convolutional neural network designed by Microsoft. They’re normally used to process images for computer vision, though in this case they’re analyzing audio.”
